Demand for Ethanol to drive the Global Alcohol Market
The global alcohol market is segmented on the basis of type of alcohols, applications, and geography. On the basis of type of
alcohol, this market is categorized into ethanol, butanol, methanol, sorbitol, xylitol, ethylene glycol, and pentanol. The market
for ethanol is by far the largest, since it is the most widely used variety of alcohol all over the world. 100 billion liters is the
global consumption of ethanol, out of which more than 80 billion liters is used as fuel. The high demand for ethanol can be
attributed to it being considered a renewable fuel and also the fact that it is used as a substitute for gasoline.
High demand for ethanol as a fuel is a key factor that drives the global alcohol market. Much of the demand for ethanol also
comes from industries such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and alcoholic beverages. In the healthcare sector, ethanol is used as
a skin disinfectant for invasive procedures and injections. Also, because of its highly volatile nature, ethanol is a crucial
ingredient in hand sanitizers and soaps. Based on applications, the global alcohol market is segmented into antiseptics,
antifreeze, preservatives, fuels, solvents, and alcoholic beverages.

Expanding Automotive and Pharmaceuticals Markets to Propel the Methanol Market
Another extensively used type of alcohol in the industrial segment is methanol. Over the past couple of years, the market for
methanol has been expanding significantly. Methanol is an important component of formaldehyde that is used extensively in
industries such as wood and resins, pharmaceuticals, and automotive. The other chemicals that use methanol as an
intermediate component are acetic acid, dimethyl terephthalate, methyl chloride, and methyl methacrylate.
High demand for methanol from several end-use industries drives the global market for alcohol. Acetic acid is mainly used in
industries such as adhesives and fleece, and paints and coatings. The demand for dimethyl terephthalate comes from the
market for recyclable plastic bottles. Methyl chloride is used in the production of silicone, which is used in medical applications,
lubricants, sealants, and adhesives.
North America: Dominant Regional Market
Geographically, the global alcohol market is segmented into Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Africa, and the
Middle East. Brazil, Europe, and the U.S. are by far the largest consumers of ethanol as a fuel. The demand for ethanol in the
Asia Pacific market is expected to increase substantially in the forecast period. Also, the demand for alcoholic beverages is
increasing in Asia Pacific and is projected to increase in the forthcoming years as well.
In terms of production, North America holds the highest share in the global alcohol market. The other prominent regional players
in the global alcohol market are Asia Pacific, Europe, and South America. Also, Brazil and the U.S. are the largest manufacturers
of ethanol in the global alcohol market.
